Maths (27)

Finally there is an community that come up with interactive and fun way to learn mathematics!

Americans say math, but people from other English-speaking countries say maths. Why is that? They say it's because it's short for mathematics, which is plural.

But consider this: fish can mean multiple fishes. But you don't always have to say fishes. "Fish" can be plural on its own. I caught some fish today. You don't have to say I caught some fishes.

Countability is an issue in English, where it matters for some words, but not others. English is a mess, where rules are made and broken all the time.

You can also read mathematics manga here!

+1 I approve this

>>2 When people say it out loud for the plural, I've always parsed it in my head as "fishies" like one little fishy, two little fishies, and "fishes" was only for the verb - "He fishes every day". A little research just now says there are only a few special cases where "fishes" is used for plural "fish". So, you don't have to say "I caught some fishes" because it would be a weird way of saying it, unless (as I just learned) you caught more than one type of fishy.

Cool, I was wondering if there was a complete catalog for the manga guide stuff somewhere.

I think it is more beneficial if you can post your 'great' idea to people or even chick like danica mckellar (that is if you even know who she is) for example instead of waste broadband space where I think nobody is going to read them anyway! ۩

To me, "fish" seems more natural as an unspecified quantity of fish, whereas "fishes" is more for a specific number of individual fish. So, "four fishes", but "a pound of fish". This extends nicely to the "some fishes" case as you mention.

I have a theory that spammers look for strings other spammers use, because if a site doesn't stop one spammer, it most likely won't stop another.

If I designed a spam bot, like the ones posting >>15 and >>16, I'd make it scrape sites (or maybe just do google dorking) to find sites with spam already, then makes posts on those ones. Not worth bothering with sites that don't already have any spam, since it might mean they actually have effective anti-spam measures.

If you can design program that can destroy trolling and stupid comments (like the dumb political communist crap that no one care?) in this whole board as well, you are an genius, dude! But I guess now I might as well take refugee to reddit instead cos I know that it is mission impossible!

I have designed this program. It assumes you are using Windows.

Step 1: Go to Control Panel -> Network -> Proxy and turn on 'Use a proxy server'
Step 2: Put "" in the address box and "1337" in the port box
Step 3: Close the window and enjoy your new online experience free of trolling and stupid comments

>>20 is the IP address of, which has no services running on port 1337.
Perhaps the joke would have been more evident if I had said or The IP address does not matter as long as it is not an abnormally "leet" IP.

As a communist, I find this comment offensive. Remove it now or it's off to the gulags with you!

>As a communist

calling yourself a commie while living in a western country is just larping
